Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs

The University of Northern Iowa is nationally recognized for the high quality education we provide to our students.

Our faculty and staff work closely with students to assist them in discovering their passion and then finding ways to connect that passion to their major so that they can realize their potential. Through rigorous course work, mentoring and advising, co- and extra-curricular activities, faculty and staff demonstrate a deep care for our students.

Along with strong academic programs, UNI has a special focus on offering intentional and developmental applied and engaged learning experiences. Recent research from employers demonstrates a strong desire not only for learning inside the classroom, but also for learning outside the classroom where students solve real world problems in real world settings. UNI students engage in undergraduate research with their faculty, live client projects with local businesses, service-learning and community engagement with non-profit organizations, and many other engaged learning activities. As a result, our students thrive both while they are students and once they graduate.
